Krispy Kreme Limited Time Pumpkin Spice Krispy Juniors

Krispy Kreme Limited Time Pumpkin Spice Krispy Juniors? Or curly fries? Sure looks like curly fries in those bags. (Spotted by Chibi at Food Lion.)

Fazoli's Parmesan Boneless Chicken and Fazoli's Six Cheese Toasted Ravioli

Fazoli's Chicken Alfredo Flatbread and Fazoli's Lasagna Fritta

Fazoli's Mozzarella Stuffed Mini Breadsticks

I’ve never been to a Fazoli’s. Can someone tell me how their food is using Olive Garden, Bucca di Beppo, or Macaroni Grill as a guide? (Spotted by Kevin at Walmart.)

Almond Dream Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice Almond Drink

I’ve had dreams of this. No, seriously, I’ve been wondering when there would be a pumpkin spice almond drink ever since Silk came out with their pumpkin spice beverage. (Spotted by Emily at ShopRite.)

Werther's Original Limited Edition Spiced Caramel Apple Caramel Popcorn

I have a feeling these will get stuck to my teeth, just like regular Werther’s Originals candy. (Spotted by Nick at Target.)

  1. I love Fazoli’s! It’s a fast-food style restuarant, the food is inexpensive. I love the baked spaghetti, with unlimited breadsticks when you dine in. I’ll have to keep an eye out for these grocery items. Which reminds me, Marvo, we haven’t seen a frozen food review here lately!

  2. I would say Olive Garden is fine dining compared to the Fazoli’s in my neck of the woods. It’s low qualty fast food Italian. Personally, I have never thought “Man, I really wish I could eat my spaghetti on the go!” Medical reps cater it to my work probably once a month or more. It’s decent food, but I would never shell out any money for it. It’s preportioned and reheated, as you would expect from a fast food Italian chain. I have to admit though, their breadsticks are tasty.

  3. Fazoli’s is to Macaroni Grill as McDonald’s is to Five Guys (or whatever your favorite higher-end burger place is) but given a choice I would take Fazoli’s as a fast food option over the burger joints.

    Whatever you think of their food overall, the visit is made worth it by the breadsticks alone.

  4. Fazoli’s is fast-food Italian (complete with a drive-thru), but I actually think it tastes better than Olive Garden. The frozen offerings are odd though because none of that is sold in the restaurant, as far as I know.

  5. I’m pretty sure I won’t be purchasing the caramel corn…simply for the fact the it says “Shoppe” on the packaging. 😉
